Mob Pod: Terri–Anne Daniel, Cooee Cookies

8 minutes

‘Food, for thousands of years, has brought people together to celebrate. Yet with increased allergies and ethical food choices, If something as humble as having a cuppa and sharing a plate of cookies was to continue then something had to change in how we bake. I personally set myself the task of creating the most allergy-friendly cookies that I could, to bring back that wholesome art of sharing food.’ Terri–Anne Daniel, a Wiradjuri woman, founder of Cooee Cookies shares her business story with Lisa Gissing from Westpac.

The name “Cooee” pays homage to her indigenous heritage and her great-grandmother's hometown of Gilgandra, in central NSW. Since she was a young girl learning to bake alongside her grandmother, her passion for food has continued to grow.  ‘I am continually inspired by my Indigenous culture. This, together with my unwavering dedication to inclusiveness and kindness, is at the core of everything we do at Cooee Cookies.’

A collaboration with NSW Indigenous Chamber of Commerce.
